Irina Shayk Goes Sleek and Sophisticated for Vogue Arabia’s February Covers

It’s hard to believe Vogue Arabia celebrates its one year anniversary next month. Ever since its debut, the publication has had a solid run and the February 2018 issue starring Irina Shayk is no different (we do love a good Irina cover of Vogue, whether she’s giving good face on Vogue Japan, vamping it up on Vogue Russia or getting into the party spirit on Vogue Italia). Following in the footsteps of Imaan Hammam, Pooja Mor and Halima Aden, the Russian bombshell goes minimal on two sleek and sophisticated covers, photographed by Miguel Reveriego for Arabian Vogue.

“Looks very good. Great typography!” added mikel, showing the art direction some love. (more…)

Angelina Jolie Looks Flawless on ELLE’s March 2018 Cover

Nina Garcia just unveiled her debut issue of ELLE since taking the helm late last year, and who better to grace your first cover than one of Hollywood’s biggest stars? Angelina Jolie fronts ELLE‘s big spring fashion edition looking gorgeous as ever. Photographed by Mariano Vivanco, the actress wears one of Anthony Vaccarello’s Saint Laurent creations (à la Kaia Gerber on Vogue Paris) in the bold, no-nonsense shot.

Our forums were big fans of the cover. “What a bold cover for Angelina. We all know she is very protective of her image so this glamorous explosion of color is a welcome surprise,” admired dodencebt.

“What a fantastic cover! Angelina looks incredibly beautiful and all the simplicity involved is quite stunning,” wrote clo. (more…)

Alicia Vikander Is Photoshopped Into Oblivion on Vogue’s March Cover

In the world of fashion magazines, March is the second biggest issue of the year (after September, of course), so why aren’t the major publications pulling out all the stops? Vogue is the latest to disappoint, adding yet another over-Photoshopped and unrecognizable cover star to the newsstand this month. Anna Wintour welcomes back Alicia Vikander to the cover, captured by photographer Steven Klein. The Tomb Raider actress wears Louis Vuitton (natch) in the over-processed photo, styled by Tonne Goodman.

Our forum members were left shaking their heads. “Too robotic looking if that makes sense. Steven Klein’s photography is not for US Vogue covers. Also horrible styling,” scolded Scotty.

“I mean that can’t possibly her real-life skin tone? She looks 20 years older! Klein usually likes this kinda tanned skin, and robotic feel so I bet it’s all him, but that editorial belongs in W, not Vogue!!” Miss Dalloway slammed. (more…)

Oprah Stars on WSJ Magazine’s Joyous March 2018 Cover

You’re about to see a whole lot more of Oprah at the newsstand (and we predict even more so throughout 2018). Laura Brown brilliantly tapped the American philanthropist for InStyle‘s latest and now Oprah makes an appearance on WSJ Magazine‘s March 2018 ‘Women’s Fashion’ edition. The publication has been a favorite of the tFS forums ever since its debut in 2008 and continues to impress, doing Oprah justice with a joyous and momentous cover shot. Photographed by Mario Sorrenti and styled by George Cortina, Oprah lifts our spirits wearing an Azzedine Alaia jumpsuit.

Members of our forums were into it. “I love this. I think it represents Oprah perfectly and she looks ‘on fleek,'” noted FadeToBlack.

“Well, I like the vintage feel of the image, and her shape adds a lot of character to it. Maybe the pose is a bit too Messianic/iconic, and would probably befit a Nobel prize winner better. But Oprah has done a lot for the entertainment industry, so it makes sense,” commented Benn98. (more…)

Selena Gomez Looks a Lot Like Kylie Jenner on the March Cover of Harper’s Bazaar

Just about every fashion publication has encountered some major staff changes over the past twelve months and we’re starting to think US Harper’s Bazaar is in dire need of a shakeup too. Our forums have become increasingly tired of the same old cover formula and the newly unveiled March 2018 issue is no exception. Returning to Bazaar‘s front cover after her April 2013 appearance is Selena Gomez, photographed by Bazaar regular Alexi Lubomirski. Selena is all smiles in the newsstand cover (below), sporting a dress from Coach (with which she is now well affiliated) and a blond hairdo.

Something about the cover seems off and our forum members instantly picked up on it. “I (unashamedly) love me some Selena but she looks like she has entered a beauty pageant competition here. It’s a disaster of a cover. Also, has that Coach dress been Photoshopped on her? That CANNOT be how a real dress drapes around the armpits,” an eagle-eyed dodencebt pointed out.

“WTF! Look at this hair, complete disaster,” echoed ghostwriter10549. (more…)

Katy Perry’s Garish Glamour Cover Proves It’s Time for Change at the Magazine

After months of questionable covers, we officially can’t wait for Glamour‘s new editor-in-chief Samantha Barry to unveil her first issue of the magazine. The title still manages to reign in big names, like Tracee Ellis Ross as last month’s cover girl, Gigi HadidReese Witherspoon and now, Katy Perry for March 2018. The singer is her usual OTT self in the cover shot wearing Louis Vuitton and giving us major flashbacks of vintage copies of i-D Magazine from the 80s in the loud Emma Summerton-shot image.

Per usual, our forums won’t be rushing down to the newsstand. “I got a headache just by looking at this,” stated a far from impressed apple upon checking out the cover.

“Yikes, they’re going downhill fast! Hope the new EIC will be able to restore order because everything about this cover is tragic. How do they expect magazines to survive with such images?” quizzed a horrified Benn98. (more…)
